Public Istanbul

Istanbul is one of  the largest and most dynamic metropolises on the Eruopean continent. In the context of processes of globalization and local urban planning projects urban space is continously contested. In thies anthology forms, meanings and images of these urban spaces are discussed by architects, historians, and social scientists. Through interdisciplinary approaches of theory and case studies the book delivers a deep insight into the construction and constitution of public spaces and spheres in contemporary Istanbul.
